I have been working on Bird paintings since 2009, when I self published a hardback art book of the same title. I never cease to be amazed by the impact these creatures have on my life and any environment in which I inhabit. There is a consistency with birds in their behaviours and presence. I have mostly lived in coastal areas in my adult life and have welcomed the presence of gulls especially, their grumpy faces, bad attitudes and hostility to tourists. However there is something deeper in a comforting way about that ominiscience and that is what i try to capture in my work.
